Mozambican dredging contract awarded to Van Oord

Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 31 October 2017 – Van Oord has been contracted to carry out emergency dredging works in the Port of Beira, Mozambique. CFM, the ports and railways company of Mozambique, is the client. Reinstating the port access channel to its charted lines and levels is of great importance to facilitate the growing maritime transport in this region. Execution of the project will start soon and will take six months to complete.

The Port of Beira acts as a gateway to the central interior area of the country as well as the land-locked nations of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Trailing suction hopper dredger Volvox Atalanta will dredge the port access channel to its original width and depth and will be assisted by the Sagar Manthan for bed-levelling operations.
